Audience Awards announces partnership with Filmstro

June 23, 2016

Audience Awards is pleased to announce a partnership with Filmstro. Filmstro presents filmmakers with an innovative, professional and cost effective solution to meet their soundtrack needs!  Select video contests will award up to two Filmstro soundtrack licenses for movies up to $1M budget worth $1999. This is a terrific value for our filmmakers.


“Filmstro and Audience Awards are natural partners as we are both about empowering independent talent. Our license prizes will be of direct benefit to the winners of a series of Audience Awards competitions, putting professional soundtrack composition straight into the hands of the filmmaker for their next projects. We are thrilled to be associated with such a positive initiative.” – Filmstro

 Here’s what you need to know:

What is a Filmstro soundtrack license?

Filmstro is the same product whichever license one purchases. The different licenses cover different exploitation of the same product. The value to the filmmaker is that they can create a soundtrack that truly supports and enhances their picture for a fraction of the cost of achieving similar results with dedicated composition and recording. We decided that this license was the most appropriate for Audience Awards entrants as it will likely help them on their next steps after winning.

What are the uses and rules of the license?

The tracks that constitute the soundtrack are covered worldwide and in perpetuity for the film and any trailers deriving from it. The license is restricted to that project alone. If a tv series based on the film were to be commissioned using music from the film, the appropriate license would need to be purchased. See Terms and Conditions

How can a filmmaker tell if a contest is awarding the Filmstro soundtrack license?
